“This wine is about new journeys, reaching new heights and going to places never before seen as depicted by the hot air ballon. The three leaves on the right showcase the number of cultivars in the blend while the school bag, athlete and fisherman all suggest how we always have high hopes when we try something new or when we go out to achieve something great. Lukas is also a keen fisherman who always has high hopes when he goes out for the day with the hopes of catching dinner. In the background

Description

CELLAR INFORMATION The Syrah was 30% wholebunch fermented and aged in large 500 Litre barrels. The Grenache and Cinsaut were destemmed before fermentation and aged in small barriques. Due to the extremely low yields on all three vineyards, one pump over was done daily to capture the essence of the wines. The components were then blended after 10 months in oak. No enzymes or fining agents were used
in the making of the wine. VINEYARD INFORMATION The Syrah is planted on schist soils in a low yielding vineyard which produced only 2,5 tons per Hectare in 2021 adding deeply concentrated
flavours to the wine. The Grenache and Cinsaut components are planted on red soils which is rich in iron. These parcels give the final blend lovely perfume and elegance.

Producer Profile

Lukas van Loggerenberg’s wines have become part of the fabric of SA cult wines.

Each wine tells a story, from the hard Graft required to build a fine wine brand from nothing in Africa, the Breton, Cabernet Franc that has found a home in Stellenbosch, the 1932 Lötter Cinsault vineyard in Franschhoek that continues to produce quality grapes despite the odds, and the Kamaraderie (Camaraderie) of the SA wine industry that makes it all possible. There are more, but of the 2022 vintage we were able to procure these ethereal wines, that represent more than just an enjoyable drink, but tell a story of a year in the vines, in South Africa, and the fortitude of its maker. Allocations are small, and the wines in great demand, thus make haste
